I had also considered a blocked feed pipe but if it was blocked then the turbo would have let go and there would be no oil to leak from the return gasket... or has the banjo at the top of the turbo on the feed pipe let go and this is just peeing everywhere.

Just a quicky had same problem with my t5 Oil trap blocked over presured the crank case main sill , all the oil on therear screen is cause by the airodynamics of the rear of the car the oil will blow back from the front of the engine towards the back and yes it will cover all
Not a simple job to do but can be done at home
Regards Mike

The oil return line will only leak under higher boost. Check all bango fittings for tightness.

Tech,

You are a genius!checked all the banjo fittings, the oil feed banjo in the block turned about x3 clicks onratchet spanner everything else was fine (x1 click). Fired it up and got over a gallon out in 3 seconds... guess the pipe was fractured and tighteningthe banjoopened it up, anyway new part ordered (£30) will be here tomorrow. I am counting my blessings that I spotted the leak before the pipe burst!

Cheers mate... owe you a pint for that

That "little" crack dumped over a gallon of oil in 3 seconds! Of course it wasn't as big as that untilI tightened the banjo I think it's fairly obvious that it started life as a stress fracture [:@].
